Non-surgical treatments

We offer an exclusive experience for you to improve those small imperfections through non-surgical techniques or achieve a more youthful appearance through cosmetic surgery.

As we age, the skin looses elasticity. Added to the long-term effects of natural muscle contractions like smiling, laughing and frowning, this can lead to the development of wrinkles. They are also worsened by sun damage and smoking. Treatments such as juvederm facial fillers, restylane lip fillers and botulinum toxin anti-wrinkle treatments can help to reduce fine lines.

Our minimally-invasive treatments aim to give you a rejuvenated look without the need to undergo surgery, with the reassurance that your treatment will be carried out by our highly trained team, in our relaxed, modern clinics.

The non-surgical anti-wrinkle treatments, fillers, sclerotherapy, skin peels and microdermabrasion that are carried out at our exclusive clinics can be with our consultant surgeons, or by our experienced cosmetic nurse practitioner.

Non-surgical treatments available

Muscle relaxants

Muscle relaxants like Botox® work by blocking the nerve impulses that cause muscle contraction. This paralyses small muscles in the face so they can’t cause creases and the skin stays smoother as a result.

The muscle relaxant is injected using a fine needle inserted in the area to be treated and the treatment usually takes around 15 minutes, depending on the amount and extent of wrinkles being treated. It gradually takes effect over a week or two and usually lasts between three to four months. There is no recovery time needed after treatment, so you can carry on with your normal daily activities afterward.

Wrinkle fillers (dermal fillers)

Wrinkle fillers are used to plump out wrinkles and laughter lines and give the appearance of a faded or disappeared wrinkle that looks more natural using muscle relaxants.

Spire Cosmetic Clinics use a range of products based on hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body. As we get older our production of natural hyaluronic acid diminishes but a simple injection of filler replenishes lost volume and improves your looks by enhancing your facial profile, creating fuller lips and smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles.

The injections usually take about 15 minutes and effects can last up to a year.
